obama has failed. a day after egypt's military backed interim government slaughtered hundreds of protesters and assumed sweeping emergency powers, obama still could not bring himself to call what is happening a coup. he described it as an intervention. what do you make of that? >> particularly some of the other analysts have suggested that. i think we saw this when mccain and lindsey graham were there. the military said it's no longer a piece of leverage. that's the explanation we were getting out of the administration, the money we were giving to the military, that's our leverage. that's not even a leverage point at this point. so to gene's point, there's not a good reason why we couldn't have come forward and taken a stronger stand. if the thing that we thought was going to be our lempverage poin is now gone, then we need to find a different leverage point or find a better way to stand on the side of the people. >> ayman, before we let you go, we talk every day about the role of the united states in all of this and there are now sort of renewed calls for the u.s. to end its

just had the president of yemen here for a meeting with president obama. he goes back feeling wonderful about his new relationship with the president. next thing the president does is says in effect, sorry, but we don't trust you yemenis to protect your embassies so in effect we shut down our embassy, we have an emergency evacuation. what does that do to our relationship in the rest of north africa? what does that do in our relationship in the middle east? with all of these governments. the terrorists have achieved more with one phone call than we have achieved with all our response. >> chairman mccaul? >> you know, well, listen, i think -- the threat's real. and what i call the narrative of the president saying that al qaeda is on its heels, the struggle's over, let's go back to pre-9/11 mentality, i think it's very dangerous narrative. i get the same threat briefings that the president of the united states does. and i'm not seeing his rhetoric meeting reality. and the fact of the matter is there is a spider web. you know, we were just focused on pakistan, afghanistan, iraq. this core

obama has previously told us. >> now we have a new tower rising above the new york skyline and al qaeda is on the path to defeat. >> we've been able to decimate al qaeda. al qaeda has been decimated. >> so much for political hyperbole. now today white house press secretary jay karn ecarney reit the core of al qaeda remains greatly diminished. doesn't the core response to this threat request suggest otherwise? we have commander general wesley clark, former ambassador to the u.n. security council rich williamson and former deputy to the secretary of defense william brooks. let me go to you first, general. they narrow it down to zawahiri and al wahayshi on the peninsula. to your thinking what's the significance of that? >> first of all, we caught these guys talking so more is going to happen. secondly, we have closed embassies, positioned forces, probably done a lot of things we don't know about to get ready. by taking overt action, maybe we'll either defer the attack or force them to tip their hand and we'll preempt it. so i think it's a good decision by the administration to call the ale

-by-side. you watching this for us. let me ask you about a major change coming from the obama administration on the way that drug offenders will be prosecuted. three hours attorney general eric holder announcing a brand-new justice department policy essentially a by -by-pasd shows the way drug charges are written up resulting in reduced sentences. the judge is said to ease overcrowding at federal prisons and save money and treat low level offenders more fairly according to what we are hearing right now. what are you seeing and what does this mean? >> i think what the attorney general is saying that will be the result of this change. but he says that the reason for it, i guess partly a recognition of those factors but he is always saying mandatory minimums were unfair and require a certain number of years no matter what a person's role in a drug crime may have been. if they are not connected to a gang or a drug cartel or organized crime, they should not face the same sentence that more serious offenders do. it's part of an overall effort to refocus the federal government's efforts in crime an

expedience si they -- spendensy they turn from it. here's senator obama and other democrats. >> i happen to be a proponent of single payer? everybody in? let me ask you. single payer healthcare. system. that is what i'd like to see. but we may not get there immediately. >> i believe the goal here is to create whatever legislation we 1/2 a way that could be developed into something like a single payer system. >> i'm all for a single payer system. we have to work with what we've got to close the gap. >> neil: unless you can say what we've got is a bunch of insurance companies gouging you through the nose. their costs have again up to cover people with preexisting conditions and this plays out almost to script. >> what they never talk about is how to lower prices without government intervention so tort reform is one thing we haven't seen. the reason why insurance costs are so high is because doctors and insurers have to pay for insurance to cover lawsuits they have to take care of in terms of what the system was set up as, they never talk about the implication office a single payer system.

ten years ago without great britain, without a resolution. obama is doing exactly what he ran for president against when he pledge never to do. it is like animal farm, repainting slogans on the farm and pretending they were always that way. >>anna: we're starting to see arguments on both side. charles krauthammer saying is it something to do with the president's ego saying don't cross the red line and once crossed not doing anything about it. and jack keane saying something should have been done earlier. >> no purpose whatsoever unless it is to assuage the guilty conscience of a president or vindicate the vanity of a president who has become the laughingstock around the world and whose word means nothing because last year he spoke about a red line and allowed all the red lines to be crossed without lifting a finger. maybe he feels compelled as a way to vindicate himself. you don't take a country into war as a way to vindicate your own standing. you do it to achieve strategic objectives on behalf of your country. if they're going to do a three-day strike with no intention of al
